New Human Services resource hub, winter storm support available
The Sonoma County Human Services Department and local nonprofits have created a valuable resource in the Aging & Disability Online Resource Hub, a one-stop destination that streamlines access to critical services for older adults and individuals with disabilities.
From health to transportation and nutrition services provided by federal, state, and local government agencies and their nonprofit partners, this hub has you covered.
Plus, did you know? You can request a replacement of your CalFresh Food benefits if your food spoiled due to a power outage following the recent winter storm. Residents have 10 days after the food was lost to request the replacement.
To access the hub, call (707) 565-INFO (4636) or visit www.socoadrh.org and click on the chat icon to start a conversation with a dedicated social worker. Assistance is available for older adults, people with disabilities, family members, caregivers, social workers, and service providers.
